Detect your pulse with your webcam
This is a nice update to a post from last year. Cory Doctorow writes on BoingBoing:
Thearn released a free/open program for detecting and monitoring your pulse using your webcam. The code is on github for you to download, play with and modify. If this stuff takes your fancy, be sure and read Eulerian Video Magnification for Revealing Subtle Changes in the World, an inspiring paper describing the techniques Thearn uses in his code.
For the next step, I suggest the implementation in drones. Scary (big brother is watching you) and useful (telemedicine for rural or dangerous areas) at the same time.
Olol nice ;)
Have a nice time in the w00ds
